In her work, she applies operations research to healthcare topics. Her most recent research focuses on medical decision making, in particular on determining optimal treatment protocols by explicitly modeling stochastic disease progression. She has also developed models for health workforce planning, which take into account training requirements, workforce attrition, capacity planning, promotion rules and learning.
